  1. This is horrible. That poor precious treasure did not deserve this awful treatment. WTF happened? Was her person clueless & super careless??? I can’t understand how or why someone could do this to their furbaby…….
    Precious Blake, I know that you are absolutely in Heaven. Please look for MacKitty and join his wonderful snuggle buddies group and RIP amongst loving friends.

    Precious Blake, I truly hope that you will get justice for having your life stolen by your human’s complete failure to protect you from all dangers.

    As for the completely oblivious POS who dragged Blake, you can fix many things, but you can’t fix stupid……. They have a reserved spot in the hottest part of Hell waiting for them to burn forever for their cruelty……. I hope they are arrested, convicted and serve time for what they did to Blake (who had her life stolen due to their complete stupidity)……….
